With so much talk of beer, libations of a stiffer variety sure do get swept under the run in the month of October. But, in honor of scotch, we present to you Scot-Toberfest! If you happen to be Scottish, and/or love scotch, then this is the place to be this Tuesday evening! For more information, click here.
